Youth!

youth--bigs-edi

Youth was braver than I, and a good deal bolder

But still it would dream of being older.

Now youth is older, the world seems colder,

And life isn’t the fun youth thought it would be.

Youth hadn’t accounted for having to work

With idiots all day, and a boss who’s a jerk.

Responsibilities youth would love to shirk,

For life isn’t the fun youth thought it would be.

Up at six-thirty, stretching and yawning.

Youth shouldn’t be awake this early in the morning?

Yet another day on the treadmill is dawning.

Life isn’t the fun youth thought it would be.

Folks, youth is life’s winning ticket!

Need ambition? Youth lets you pick it!

Youth can tell bosses just where to stick it!

Keep youth! And life will be fun, as it always should be!

  1. I one time said to myself, what if I were 18 or 19 again, what would I want to do, what would I like to do? That really gave me a different perspective. Thanks for the post.
